Close up of the #viruscraft optical sensor board
@entreprecariat 'in theory there is no difference between theory and practice'
Got it working in the end, now switched to 3 multiplexers for the sensors - so we can use 3 pins to read 48 analogue photo interrupter signals for 16 virus capsid faces! #viruscraft
This morning: back to the breadboard #viruscraft
Realised I can debug the invisible with my rubbish phone camera - new IR photo interrupter sensors for #viruscraft There seems to be a lot more infrared than it looks, as this is the max voltage without getting saturation interference with the detectors next to them...
Finally dispatched to pcb fab, after about 15 revisions - the simpler they are the harder they seem to be to get right :) fingers crossed... #viruscraft
